LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln Police are investigating a shooting outside an apartment building that killed a 25-year-old man.

Police say the shooting was reported around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Officers found Joshua Hartwig fatally wounded when they arrived at the apartments about three miles north of downtown Lincoln.

Officers determined that there was an argument between a man and a woman about 30 minutes before the shooting, and the man left the area after the disagreement.

The shooting happened when a group of people was standing outside the apartment building.

Police Capt. Danny Reitan says bullets struck Hartwig and several vehicles in the area. Reitan says Hartwig, who lived in the apartments, wasn’t part of the earlier disturbance.

Reitan says a suspect was in custody on an unrelated charge Sunday.
